The Sydney based band was formed in 2012 after a jamming session at a mate’s home. Daley recounts: “Morri (James Morrison) started singing some tunes and this angelic voice came out of him. Miles (our guitar player), pretty much said on the spot, Morri we are starting a band and you’re the lead singer. I think our first gig was a few days after that.”

A fusion of Australian folklore and contemporary stories with American bluegrass, country, folk and rockabilly music styles define The Morrisons repertory of original songs. The band has worked with widely regarded Australian and international artists such as Ngaiire, Lindi Ortega, Marlon Williams, Brian Campeau, the multi-genre band Lake Street Dive and the folk group All Our Exes Live In Texas.

They have performed at the Port Fairy Folk Festival, The National, Out On The Weekend, Secret Garden and the Blue Mountains Music Festival. In 2016, The Morrison’s participated in Sydney’s Spectrum Now and Vivid Festivals.
